Freestyle Fellowship – Hot Potato

A quick one tonight as I commuted in with someone today so no music. Plus it has been a long day, so I wanted to go with something that brings a smile to my face.

Hot Potato by Freestyle Fellowship.

This is a top draw, posse cut, old school, party hip hop track. It is based on a banging beat and break and as per quite a bit of hip hop from that period, its pretty quick at about 114bpm if memory serves me right. But it’s the mc’ing that really does it. There are some great lines, interplay and they move between each other so well (you can see this in the video). The bit to listen out for is the posse bit at about 2.30. They name a fair few types of potatoes and it will have you jumping about like a loon.
